In The Line Of Fire [Blu-ray] [1993] [Region Free]
In The Line Of Fire [Blu-ray] [1993] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Clint Eastwood
Price: £6.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood versus Malkovich in terrific, tense thriller which oozes class and epic scope., 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the all-time greatest president based secret service centered films in the history of film. Over praise? Then you have not seen this film. I will freely admit that I am not the biggest Clint fan but this film has career best turns from John Malkovich as the antagonist, Rene Russo as the love interest/fellow secret service agent and Dylan McDermott as rookie agent and driver for Clint. John Mahoney aka Marty Crane also has a brief role and he's as wonderful here as he is on Frasier. Greg Alan Williams from Baywatch also has a small role. There are more recognisable faces galore but it's essentially a two hander with Clint going up against John in a thrilling cat and mouse style chase thriller. The film might lack any impressive explosions but instead it has an intensity about it that is sorely lacking in films nowadays. And yes this version of the film is full and uncut. Which only adds to immense satisfaction of this masterpiece.


Deceived [DVD] [1992]
Deceived [DVD] [1992]
Dvd ~ Goldie Hawn
Price: £4.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Goldie does drama thriller and does it sublimely with class and distinction. John Heard is effective also., 18 Aug 2014
This review is from: Deceived [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Delightful dramatic turn from a terrific Goldie Hawn makes this psycho thriller hard to beat. It's all very simple and basic but it pays dividends in the final nail biting moments. And it's not all about the chase sequence near the close. There's also an extremely interesting mystery at work here too. Supporting Ms. Hawn in her finest hour is a delectably slimy and smarmy John Heard who, here, proves he can be just as bad as he is good. And the chemistry between the two here is so believably real you'll feel sorry for the couple once his dark side takes over and their marriage not only hits the rocks but destroys any rocks it might hit. There are some wonderfully tense moments here with the queen of comedy proving that she can a) act and b) do drama and do it well. Very well in this case. For me it's one of those films that can be watched repeatedly and still be just as thrilling and involving as the first time viewed.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's the classic tale of boy meets boy but boy can't stay faithful and it all goes downhill, very, very slowly., 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't hate this film. It starts off not bad. As I got further and further into it though it just descended into bizarro land. Yes there's strong sex AND nudity (it fully deserves it's 18 certificate) but it's also far, far too long (at 122 minutes - actually 117 minutes) and for an alleged gay film it features, once again, far too much straight sex. It's the man on woman sex that is by far the most explicit of the entire film. I'm thinking that this was done because it was a part of the storyline. A director meets a dancer and they fall in love (lust?). But director can't stay faithful so starts sleeping around much to the extreme distress of his love interest. So distraught by this betrayal the love interest / dancer has a threeway. Which would be all fine and well but it's with two women. However this scene is not at all explicit. I was able to follow most of the film but once it came (so to speak) to film within a film part I fear I lost ALL interest. However that having been said/typed there IS one, just one, brief but strong gay sex between two supporting players. This occurs just before the films close but by this point you may have ceased caring. Not the worst gay film I've ever seen but a long way from being any good at all. The immense running time makes the film drag in places.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zac Efron vehicle with some other pluses. See for Miles Teller., 17 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A rom com with a lad slant? I bought this film because it has got Miles Teller in it. The film also stars Zac Efron but that's just icing on an already delicious cake. This film has been given a 15 certificate and that's for the frequent, strong language. There is sex also but it's mostly non-explicit. There is mild nudity (by Zac and Miles) but it's fleeting and not graphic. There's a storyline somewhere here buried amongst the lad jokes and smut. It's a comedy with some adult content. Aside from Miles there is an appearance from the lovely Jessica Lucas from Cloverfield but her role is brief but a nice performance from her. Michael B. Jordan from Chronicle is nice to look at and even gives good performance. Imogen Poots is pretty and a fairly good actress. This film is, as I previously typed, a comedy but it does have a little drama, one part even caused me of well up. The subtitles mis spell the 'A' word but that's hardly a minus.

4.0 out of 5 stars OTT violent torture porn sequel to peerless original. Brutal, bloody, bewildering blast., 17 Aug 2014
This review is from: Wolf Creek 2 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This review is for the region 1 DVD that I purchased from amazon.com. As a fan of the original and of this genre of film I couldn't wait for the region 2 release date. And as I have an amazon.co.uk bought DVD player that I made all regions I thought I'd check out this film (I'd heard (read) that there was OTT torture porn). Well I'm glad I did. And allow me to tell you why. Just like in the previous chapter John Jarrett is a wonderfully mean and evil brutal bastard. His performances are so downright chilling and twisted that they make this film worth buying. And as the 'hero' Ryan Corr is strikingly handsome and someone I could root for. The region 1 DVD is unrated, for a reason. The violence here makes the first film look like The Simpsons (which I like). One particularly nasty murder is stomach churning. My version of this film ran for 106 minutes (an hour and forty six minutes) which is a tad on the long side, especially for a film of this kind.


Everything Must Go [Blu-ray]
Everything Must Go [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Will Ferrell
Offered by HarriBella.UK.Ltd
Price: £3.25

3.0 out of 5 stars Slight dramedy with good performances., 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've never really been a fan of Will Ferrell's so I bought this for other reasons a) the way cheap price of £3.50 (for a blu ray!) b) the appearance of Michael Pena (who was immensely impressive in Crash (2004)). From Red Riding 1974: In the Year of Our Lord, Rebecca Hall is lovely and gives good support. Laura Dern from Jurassic Park is blonde in a one scene role. As for the man himself Ferrell is actually very good as he was in Stranger Than Fiction. It's a brief film (at only 92 minutes and it has no subtitles or extras. What there was here I enjoyed but I don't know if I'll be watching it again any time soon. For fans of Wills only then.


Happiness [DVD] [1999]
Happiness [DVD] [1999]
Dvd ~ Jane Adams
Price: £4.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Overlong extremely disturbing and dark drama with some black comedy., 12 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Happiness [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
One of the most disturbing films of all time. This film is so grotesquely over the top in its depiction of some truly stomach churning themes. That having been said it's performances from a wonderful cast are nothing short of brilliant. The late, great Phillip Seymour Hoffman excels here in a vile character, tho not the most vile in the film. As the worst screen father of all time Dylan Baker is utterly chilling in possibly the most heinous character ever put on screen. From Twin Peaks Lara Flynn Boyle is here a joy to watch as a disturbed and disturbing woman. And from Ghost Whisperer Camryn Manheim is a hoot as a lonely woman who has something horrible happen to her. As the nominal lead Jane Adams is always magnificent. This is not an easy film to watch and at times it is cringe worthy. Approach either caution as thus film is an 18 for a reason. There's no torture porn here but there is ickiness unlike which you'll never want to see again or have seen before. Oh and at 2 hours and 14 minutes it does tend to drag in places.
